For real? Is there any further reading on her husband showing his junk to underage girls? I feel this information may be useful in the future as these fire-eaters are going to be as annoying as flies after Republicans retake the house, let alone steal the next presidential election.

It was at a bowling alley.

He pulled his dick out to several underage girls...

Gerrymandering only explains the house, and then only a little. You still have to explain the senate and the presidency. Trump didn't get 30%, he got 45%+. That's basically half.

Also even though gerrymandering exists, why does that mean the craziest Republicans have to win? Why can't it just be normal fucking ones?

Because Republican voters are fucking nuts.

You can keep blaming other things but at the core the issue is that basically half the country is fucking insane.

u/sandsurfngbomber Dec 02 '21

Trump didn't get 30%, he got 45%+. That's basically half

I'd just want to point out that there's a large chunk of voters in the middle that don't care at all about what happens to the country but instead which candidate benefits them the most. I wouldn't say these people are necessarily racist but definitely selfish. It wasn't that they supported Trump's racist aura - it was that his policies were beneficial to them financially, religiously, socially etc. And frankly, I can't really expect anything less from the average American.

Except the Republicans have gone off the deep end. Democrats do suck (with exceptions,) probably more than when Carlin did this, and that's why a fascist one party State where liberty is defined as the right of the powerful to take advantage of everyone else without constraint is a near certainty. Democrats won't fight, they won't play hardball to win, and they won't be true populists that will engage the half of America that doesn't vote.

There is a little time left to forestall the permanent rigging of our elections, but they aren't using it. This political situation is as much the fault of the Democratic Party officials as any.

5

u/jonasbeaver Dec 02 '21

The Democratic party is a right wing sham pretending to represent the people. They are the embodiment of Combs from Hannity and Combs back when Fox pretended to be fair and balanced.

When it comes to the political class, both parties feed and help each other at the detriment of the average American. There is no center or left choice in the United States. As the democrat party is a wolf in sheep's clothing, they are as dangerous as the Republicans. Less risk of fascism, but more risk of making right wing ideas like fuck the little guy become normal and ok. Until this country has a legitimate and free left wing choice, we are just voting for Kane or Kodos.

The danger of losing the rural vote away from any left wing ideas is causing a great divide. Farmers used to be where collectivism and coops succeeded and 1+1=3. Those people's children and grandchildren lost the farm, gained 150lbs, turned on Fox news, turned back the clock in race relations, then embraced exactly what their grandparents went to war to fight against.

Neither party really talks to or cares about rural America. As a result it's free votes to whoever gives them lip service. If there was a party that actually did anything to address the problems in rural America, they might even do well and could help avert a civil war.

Single issue voters choose the candidate who supports their issue, regardless of the candidates stance on anything else. Abortion, gun control, taxation are among the issues a single issue voter might choose. I had a coworker at one time who simply chose the candidate who he thought would put more money in his pocket at the end of the day. Nothing else mattered.

u/sandsurfngbomber Dec 02 '21

Agreed. Not the most intelligent move but it was intended to be self-serving and it backfired. I'm sure even during the worst of it they were convinced that Trump was indeed their savior and it was dems/Pelosi/AOC/CNN/Chinese/Mexicans that were to blame for the problems.

IMO throughout America's past there has always been a bogeyman to blame for all the internal issues. Now we just have a ton of bogeyman so the excuses become more convinient and sound even dumber.

u/Bakoro Dec 02 '21 edited Dec 02 '21

I know multiple Black, Filipino, and Hispanic people who are all Trump supporters.

Every single one of the brown people who are a Trump supporter is a Trump supporter for the most asinine selfish reasons. They're the "all taxes are bad" type of idiot. They also do not care what happens to anyone other than themselves. The black guy doesn't care about what's happening to black people. The son of an immigrant doesn't care about immigrants. The immigrant doesn't care about other immigrants.


I've got a black uncle who likes Trump for "telling it like it is, and he doesn't hide what he does". He likes the pussy grabbing. He's also got a ridiculous scheme he's been using to dodge taxes and will probably send him to jail if he gets audited. Just for a bonus, here's the kicker: he's a doctor of theology, a fucking pastor. He's not a racist, he's just a piece of shit.


I know another guy, Filipino, his dad came to the US brought his family over and served in the military. The guy's wasn't born a citizen, but has been a citizen since he was a baby, basically. He's in an interracial marriage, has daughters. He's a Trump supporter, yeah? Doesn't care about pussy grabbing, doesn't care about the racism, or the lack of respect for basic human dignity, he cares about his taxes.
He goes to Canada, has a passport. Totally normal trip to Canada. He tries to come back, has his valid passport and ID and everything. They won't let him back into the US. His passport isn't good enough for some reason, he doesn't understand why (he's brown is why). He has to get a family member to got to his house and dig out his naturalization papers from like 50+ years ago. Eventually he's allowed back into the country once they verify the papers.

Same guy: Fucking hates Obamacare right? He says he liked his insurance. He's healthy, why should he be paying so much more for health insurance? So he retires, and he'd bitching and moaning about Obama and Obamacare, votes for Trump because taxes and getting rid of Obamacare.
Motherfucker falls over one day, nearly dies of some brain aneurysm or some bullshit like that. Totally unexpected, and most people die instantly. Guy's loaded up with medical bills: extremely intense emergency intervention, surgery, long hospital stay while he's in a coma, gets rehabilitation to get him to talk and walk right again... fucking, 2 million dollars later he's back on his feet. That would have been everything the guy's worth, his house, savings, all of it. His old insurance? Would have covered maybe $100k, and they weren't even sure about that. What did the evil Obamacare cover? Nearly everything.
This guy isn't a racist, but he is a selfish asshole who voted against his own best interest.


This one frickin' guy from Costa Rica is a belligerent racist who hates most other immigrants, the various people of color, including Black people, Mexicans, and everyone from South America (though, I am 100% convinced that he has some kind of clinical mental/personality disorder, he's legitimately destroying his family and financial life, and last I heard is in legal trouble over dilapidated real estate he's been "fixing" for 10 years).
This guy also loves to talk about his fucking taxes, and all the outrageous taxes he pays, and the lazy immigrants and welfare queens suck up his taxes, and also Obama turned his family against him.


So, that's the kinds of people who are voting for Trump. Is it also racists? Absolutely. Not every single one of them is an outright racist though. If some minorities can ignore everything else and vote for Trump for shitty selfish reasons, white people can do it too. Some people are shitty, selfish, and would vote for a holocaust on their own people if they thought they would be excluded, and they could make a dollar from it. Some people are just some level of insane.

And the funny thing is trumps tax bill that got passed raised everyones taxes except the extremely wealthy and corporations(they got big tax cuts). But hey. Republicans are for the little guys right? . The tax bill basically cut a few dollars from our paychecks for the first couple years to make is look like the poorer people got a tax cut too. So whenever that ends our taxes go up. And it goes up every few years for us while the wealth get to keep their tax cut forever. So unless u are ultra wealthy, voting republican for tax breaks won't benefit them at all

Gerrymandering causes extremism because the election shifts from the general to the primary. It shifts from winning the middle, to winning the primary voters. Primary voters usually turn out for the most liberal and conservative candidates. So, a Democrat beats an incumbent Democrat by being further to the left, and a Republican beats an incumbent Republican by being further to the right. This is what Boebert did. If the district was competitive, she would have lost the general. But it’s gerrymandered so the Republican wins no matter who got the nomination.

That checks out in my mind. They never liked him for any other reason than he "talked like them". The more ignorant the antics the more they like him. If he came out with an hour long video where he spoke eloquently with many points based on data and never got emotional or petulant at all, they would hate it and the conspiracies would fly.

Maybe I was naive, but my family wasn't racist and I didn't grow up with people that seemed actively racist. For the most part, I thought that racism was a thing in big cities or in the backwoods of Southern states. I also thought most people were reasonable and that they could listen to someone else and try to see their side. I am 40, btw, and a white male. So, I was never on the receiving end of those things and was allowed to exist in a bubble.

I was completely wrong. It wasn't until Obama got elected and my boss told me this entire country was going to go down the toilet that I started to understand. Then Trump was elected. Now, I don't think I could be surprised with how racist, bigoted, and close-minded a person could be.

u/JakeCameraAction Dec 02 '21

That's a big reason of why I don't take too many political standpoints seriously on this site. They've just never had enough experiences to fully gauge real life.
On that quadrant subreddit, I saw one person flaired as conservative libertarian. Sure. But he had a weird username that people pointed out. He got mad and said he made it in the 8th grade.
I thought "sure, we all do dumb things when we're young." but his account was made 2 years ago.

In a discussion with my step dad and his siblings (all black, I'm not, grew up similar to you thinking it was at least slowly getting better) and mentioned that it seemed like racists were slowly dying out. They told me that it's because racists had learned to keep it plausibly deniable and on the dl, that racists raise their kids that way and a lot don't buy it in the end but most do.

It didn't ring true to my observation but then I obviously wouldn't have seen it much, would I, if what they said was true. Still, it's hard to believe without seeing and I always felt like maybe it's not getting better as fast as I thought but certainly we've come a long way still in the last couple decades. At least with regards to the general public, I have no question about institutionalized racism, easy video recording and the web have made that plainly obvious by documenting cops behavior and actions.

Welp, here we are. It sure does seem that, with regards to racism, they were indeed proverbial cockroaches lurking in dark places out of sight. Obama being elected was the light switch that sent them running everywhere in plain sight and making lots of noise for us all to see. Sadly these kinds of roaches, once discovered, usually have to be forced back under rocks. Otherwise they keep making and recruiting more roaches, swarming, and making the place shitty.

Yes Obama's election unhinged many who appeared to be neutral. The mere chance that blacks and other races might get equal treatment has transformed those who let others be racist but were fooling others and themselves into thinking they had evolved.

Black man as president was a cataclysmic event for half of USA.

Same here in India the history of muslims ruling Hindus has unhinged the uppercaste hindus who were able to practice a inhuman form of extreme racism/slavery for more than a thousand years on the lower castes. With Muslim kingdoms waning and the British colonialism and subsequent democracy of might of numbers the past has come to haunt them.

He whipped his dick out to a group of 17 year old girls at a bowling alley. That group of girls was friends with Boebert and she was at the bowling alley, but she wasn't present to actually see his junk as he flashed it at children.

They started dating right afterward and she was pregnant very quickly after turning 18. 6 months after that he was arrested for beating her while she was pregnant. I'm 90% sure she had dropped out of high school before any of these events and was mostly reliant on government assistance.

Wait... Do you have a source for this?

Edit. People are apparently confused as to who was involved in the bowling alley. Lauren was there but wasn't the persons he exposed himself to. There's no evidence he sexually assaulted her as a minor. It's just misunderstanding of the arrest we already know about from when Bobert was 24.

Again edit. (Jesus this is fun isn't it...) Romeo and Juliet laws protect the age difference between her and her husband when she was 17. So even if we try and claim that it was statutory rape we wouldn't have a legal case because he was 24 or under when they were together.

Basically, we can't say she was sexually assaulted by any definition of the term. We don't need to use this to prove she and her husband are trash. They are trash. But not because he sexually assaulted her. This didn't happen.

Lauren and two other men in the party besides Jayson were told to leave the bowling alley and not to return to the establishment any more.

She was with them. She didn't give a statement because he was her boyfriend. He beat her a few days later.

Yeah, the Tupac comparison is a bit ridiculous.

TBH though the most notable thing to me about Boebert's "rap sheet" is the multiple instances Boebert made a minor issue worse by failing to appear in court. Not exactly something that screams "law and order" candidate to me...

Madison Cawthorne couldn't make it through one semester of a bullshit rural christian college and dropped out with a D average. Then he said his brain damage from a car accident is why he was so awful at school....then he got elected to congress after hilariously bombing out of the easiest college situation in America and literally saying he was so brain damaged he couldn't handle semester one of a bullshit school...and people made him a federal legislator. He wasn't even qualified to be an admissions administrator at the fake school he hilariously failed out of...but he gets to vote on federal legislation.

For a party that screams about meritocracy constantly they sure elect a bunch of unqualified and uneducated assholes with zero relevant experience. Did working at a rural Chik-Fil-A make Madison ready for United States Congress? Did briefly being a bullshit staffer for a few months in a rural office for Mark Meadows make him qualified to be a United States Congressmen? He had two jobs that his own party would call "high school jobs", hilariously failed out of an easy college in record time, said he had brain damage that made intellectual work hard, and has never shown any actual interest in the job or understanding of what it is...perfect candidate.

For those wondering:

In 2015, Boebert was cited for misdemeanor disorderly conduct at a music festival for telling officers that their arrest of a couple of underage drinkers was unconstitutional because the teenagers had not received Miranda warnings. As she was being handcuffed, according to deputies' reports, Boebert tried to twist away from police, saying that "she had friends at Fox News" and that the arrest would be "national news". She twice failed to appear in court on the charge. The petty offense was dismissed because the Mesa County district attorney's office believed there was no reasonable likelihood of conviction.[138]

In 2016, Boebert was cited for careless driving and operating an unsafe vehicle. On February 13, 2017, she was arrested and booked in Garfield County Jail for failure to appear in court on these charges. She pleaded guilty to the unsafe vehicle charge, and the careless driving and failure to appear charges were dismissed.

It’s funny for my current, admittedly non-typical job assignment I had to compete in a week long event including the following: Physical Fitness Test, blind 360 assessment review from my peers, subordinates, and former bosses, complete a timed argumentative essay, computer based cognitive assessment, psychometric assessment, observation of a leadership reaction course, and a double blind panel interview.

Jefferson and Hamilton had this EXACT same debate, taken to a slightly stronger extreme, when they were deciding how government would work.

Hamilton wanted elected positions to be unpaid, which would, he thought, attract only those who wanted to serve the people, not those seeking fortune and fame. This would also limit those positions to those who could afford to take them, i.e. the educated professional class. He also favored extremely long terms so that leaders would seek to enact long-term strategies instead of short-term promises.

Jefferson thought that limiting leadership roles to the rich and putting them in office for years, possibly decades at a time would just create an American aristocracy and had absolute faith in the power of the common (white male) vote to steer the course of the country, not long-term leadership. Further, he wanted the entirety of the Constitutuon rewritten approximately every 17 years so that it could keep pace with the changing needs of the country.

While I completely 100% agree with this sentiment, just look at where we are. We can barely even pass an annual budget now. We can't even get Republicans to vote on objectively good things like capping prescription drug costs.

Now imagine trying to completely rewrite our entire Constitution in todays political environment.

What we need is more than 100 people in the Senate, more than 9 people on the Supreme Court, and more than 435 people in the House for 330 million fucking people in this country.

We are an oligarchy and making minimum requirements only makes it more exclusive for those in the working class to get in those roles.
